London-based artist Marg Dier creates exquisite embroideries that capture the natural beauty of the world of flowers. A graduate of the Royal School of Needlework, she uses her masterful handstitching skills to thread paint these stunning pansy brooches.
I’m blown away by the luminous layers of color in these brooches. Her use of the silk shading technique to create depth and contour, simply by altering the colour, is sublime. She does a great job of capturing the floral beauty of these wistful flowers.
Check out more of Marg’s work in her etsy shop and on her flickr stream. You’ll be treated to an array of tiny, stitched brooches and pendants all of which would make terrific gifts for the plant lover or nature enthusiast in your life. She creates even jewels made of thread – how can we resist!
